Ok so a person who works at this hospital in the area and told me that there was some woman who ran over a police officer's foot. Before even knowing
that the woman was a fugitive, the officers considered the (possible) accident to be assault with a deadly weapon. The woman driving, likely very
scared, had ran from the cops when they decided to open fire on the vehicle. The driver of the vehicle, shot by one of the officer's bullets, then
made a direct route to the hospital and died in the parking lot. Apparently the family of the woman is extremely disappointed, saying that though she
was no outstanding citizen, she also was not really a criminal. Hearsay is that the woman was only a fugitive due to a drug issue, but likely nothing
I find this to be very depressing, the death of this lady. I'm sure the cops were only following some written protocol that makes them feel that they
have no choice but to act in the name written law, but they had no original idea of the lady's criminal background-- so what gives them the right to
shoot on someone like that? No exceptions can be made, ever, and this time it ended in someone's death. So much for innocent until proven guilty.
P.S. The police officer who's foot was bruised made a full recovery and should be able to walk again. He was released from the hospital.
